Wainwright, Cardinals Slow Giants
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Adam Wainwright pitched seven strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals bounced back from a blowout, beating the San Francisco Giants 3-1 Thursday.

Carlos Beltran hit his 27th homer as the Cardinals, trounced by the Giants 15-0 the previous night. St. Louis has won seven of its last 10.

Wainwright (10-10) allowed one run and five hits, striking out seven and walking three. He has given up two earned runs or fewer in his last five starts.

Jason Motte pitched the ninth for his 25th save in 29 chances.

Beltran, who leads the NL with 80 RBIs, hit a two-run homer off Madison Bumgarner (12-7) in the first inning.
